THE WORD OF GOD IS PURE
Proverbs 30:5-Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
The bible said that in the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God. In Genesis we saw that God created the world by his word. This tells us about the potency and importance of the word of God. Our theme text says every word of God is pure and as a result of its purity, it can be trusted and that anyone that is able to put their trust in that word, that person will be protected. A shield is a symbol of defences, therefore it is safe to say that the word of God can defend us but we must put our trust in it. An English dictionary defines pure as something that is free of anything inferior or contaminating. Therefore if the word of God is not inferior, it can be relied on and trusted. Learn to trust on the word and stick to it because when the going gets tough, the word of God will defend you because it is a shield. Rely on the word and the word only when addressing those challenges in business, career, family and ministry and it will sought you out because it is real, it is not inferior, it will do unto you what it talks about. Hebrews 4:12 states ‘for the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart’. The word of God is also quick, it not slow in doing what it talks about, people sometimes say that God is slow in response/answering prayers, well that is a lie from the pit of hell, Hebrews said it is quick and powerful. Proverbs said to trust it.
